Comments closed Nov. 9. Looks like 37 comments were received. https://www.regulations.gov/docketBr...SCBP-2020-0035

I haven't read the comments, but with that few and the comment period closed, I would expect the final rule to be issued before Jan. 20, 2021.

Daughter turns 18 this coming year and GE expires on her 19th birthday . . . guess I'll miss the free renewal for her.

I'm wondering if anyone here has any insight on when this might actually go into effect now that the comment period is closed?

Finally, they harmonized the pricing between GE and SENTRI, I never really understood the reasoning between the $22.50 difference in pricing when both programs are give you the same thing. The only difference being is that the enrollment centers are different.Seeing the $22.50 difference I decided to get GE which offered more enrollment centers than SENTRI. I won't quibble over $22.50, but the availability of enrollment centers for GE presented a far better deal than driving down to San Diego/Calexico or Arizona in the worst case.

Now if SENTRI applications can be pushed at existing GE enrollment centers then the distinction between them is non-existent.

Am I missing something?

Here we are at the end of March and I've heard not a peep anywhere about this change. I'm curious if anyone has any further insight?

CBP does not have new political leadership yet, and DHS's secretary was just confirmed. My guess is that the final rule is awaiting for either a confirmed CBP director or perhaps for this issue to work its way up to the DHS secretary, who is currently likely consumed with events near the border with Mexico.

Thanks for putting it in perspective. Your reasoning makes sense.
